Get ready to go back down to the basement a second time. Netflix’s That ’70s Show reboot, That ’90s Show, has been officially renewed for season two. As they say, hello, again, Wisconsin.
In all honesty, this felt like a nostalgic project to take fans back into the world for a short foray and leave it at that. But it turns out, more episodes are on the horizon for That ’90s Show. In fact, season two of the throwback series will have 16 episodes. Season one of the show only had 10. That’s a pretty big super-sizing. But we guess there’s a lot to cover in the world of the ’90s.
But, let’s be honest. Some of the best parts of That ’90s Show revolved around the reappearance of our favorite That ’70s Show characters. So we really hope that in all those new episodes, there’s some space to let them continue to grow. We vote for Fez to get a whole episode. And we’re not sure one scene was enough Jackie and Kelso for us. Not to mention, Eric Forman is a huge part of both shows, but he barely appeared in That ’90s Show.
For those just tuning into the fun, here’s the official synopsis for season one of That ’90s Show. No word yet on what exactly season two will entail.
It’s 1995 and Leia Forman is desperate for some adventure in her life or at least a best friend who isn’t her dad. When she arrives in Point Place to visit her grandparents, Red and Kitty, Leia finds what she’s looking for right next door when she meets the dynamic and rebellious Gwen. With the help of Gwen’s friends, including her lovable brother Nate, his smart, laser-focused girlfriend Nikki, the sarcastic and insightful Ozzie, and the charming Jay, Leia realizes adventure could happen there just like it did for her parents all those years ago. Excited to reinvent herself, she convinces her parents to let her stay for the summer. With a basement full of teens again, Kitty is happy the Forman house is now a home for a new generation and Red is, well…Red.
That ’70s Show ran for eight seasons. So it would only be right if That ’90s Show ran for 10, but we guess for now, we’ll settle for two.
